The Cool Pool of the Week: The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman's Ocean Tower pool faces Seven Mile Beach

Got Millennials looking for a cool pool with views of one of the Caribbean’s best beaches? Or do you instead have clients looking for a quieter, smaller pool where kids can splash around?

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands has one for both Millennial couples and young parents. 

The hotel is home to two impressive pools for Millennials. One pool in the Ocean Tower faces Seven Mile Beach and another one in the hotel’s Resort Tower is the Harbour Club pool, which is surrounded by the basketball courts, a children’s waterpark, Starfish Cay, and the property’s Italian restaurant, Andiamo.
